How To Care For a Lab-Grown Diamond Jewelry?

How To Care For a Lab-Grown Diamond Jewelry?

Sparkling Brilliance: A Guide On How To Care For Your Lab-Grown Diamond jewelry 

 

A diamond doesn’t ask if it can shine-it just does! The same goes for lab-grown diamonds- they are physically, optically, and chemically identical to mined diamonds. Having said that, even the brightest of diamonds need some TLC.  To maintain the dazzle of your lab-grown diamond jewelry give it an occasional spa day. 

 

So here’s a guide to effective ways to keep your lab-grown diamond jewelry as radiant as you! But before we dive into the world of do’s and don’ts, let’s address the elephant in the room. 


Is taking care of lab-grown diamonds the same as mined diamonds? 

Well, the short and quick answer to that is YES! Now, with that out of the way, let’s quickly jump in. 


How would I know if my lab-grown diamond jewelry needs cleaning?

  • When you wear your lab-grown diamond every day, you will notice that eventually, they lose their luster.
  • Oils from everyday activities often leave fingerprints or smudges on the jewelry, affecting its clarity. 
  • If you are preparing to wear your lab-grown diamond jewelry for a special occasion, it’s best to have it cleaned prior.
  • Also, it’s recommended that you clean your lab-grown diamond ring, earrings, or bracelets once a month (Especially the ones you wear regularly)

Regular Care Tips

A little bit of care goes a long way in prolonging the life of your jewelry. So here are some tips for daily wear and tear.


  • Protect your lab-grown diamond jewelry from harsh chemicals, household cleaners, and beauty products.
  • Always wrap your jewelry in a soft cloth and store it in its respective box.
  • Take a few moments to inspect your jewelry. Ensure that prongs and settings are secure and undamaged. 
  • Avoid wearing your lab-grown diamond jewelry while gymming or swimming. Diamonds are not exactly a fan of sweat and chlorine.
  • It is advisable to store your lab-grown diamond ring, earrings, and bracelets in their respective box or a jewelry box with separate compartments for each.

Chemicals to Avoid

Now, before we jump into the whole cleaning process, let us warn you to be wary of certain chemicals. Lots of your everyday home cleaning products contain chemicals that may not be friendly to your diamonds and might end up causing more damage than good. But don’t worry, that’s exactly what we are here for, so below is a small list of chemicals to avoid before you opt for home cleaning:

  • Chlorine
  • Bleach
  • Ammonia
  • Acetone

Home Cleaning

The best and easiest way is to clean your lab-grown diamonds at home using ingredients you can easily find in your house. 


Ingredients

  • A bowl of warm water
  • 2 fresh and dry towels
  • A soft bristle brush
  • A fragrance-free soap or a non-toxic, eco-friendly jewelry cleaning solution

Steps

  • Take a bowl with some warm water and mix some soap or cleaning solution.
  • Soak your lab-grown diamond jewelry in this soap-water solution for around five minutes
  • Then take a soft brush, gently brush the diamond in circles, and get every nook and cranny.
  • Be gentle on your lab-grown diamonds, you don’t want to leave a scratch on that stunning metal.
  • Once you are done brushing, lay your jewelry down gently on a towel and replace the soap-water solution in the bowl with clean warm water, rinse your jewelry carefully and make sure you remove all the soap.
  • After the rinse, use the second dry towel to clean your lab-grown diamond.
  • For the nth time remember to be gentle through the entire process. Being gentle is the key here.

Professional Cleaning

Now while home cleaning is convenient and easy, deep cleaning is also a necessity- just like we girls love our occasional medi-pedi sesh, our diamonds love them too. Consider professional cleaning services for a thorough maintenance session. Experts can assess your lab-grown diamond ring, earrings, or bracelet, providing a deeper clean and addressing any specific concerns you may have about your jewelry's condition. Have your lab-grown diamond cleaned professionally at least once a year.


Now all this information might sound like a lot of work, but diamonds, my dear, have been born from hard work and precision. Besides, as they say, ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!’ and we girls always look out for our besties.
